VISUALISING AUSTRALASIA’S SOILS
- Federation University & CRC for High Performance Soils
Research QuestionThe Visualising Australasia’s Soils interoperable spatial knowledge system provides the Soil CRC participants, and the broader agricultural industry in general, access to data, information, and knowledge on Australasian soils.
Research Information & Objectives
The project leverages established technologies developed by the lead researchers to federate data from
disparate sources in both the public and private sector to make agriculture data more Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR). It includes a data stewardship and governance model for custodians to clearly set the rules under which access to their data, or parts of their data, is possible. A key differentiator
from other soil data initiatives is that data custodians will be empowered with the skills, knowhow and tools so their soil and agriculture data can be seamlessly integrated with other agricultural data in next generation data models and knowledge products, to enhance decision making and generate new insights into the profitability and resilience of Australian agriculture
